ABOUT TSG HAMPTONS EDITOR HANNAH FAME LASURDO:

As a descendant of one of the original Montauk lighthouse keepers, and a 13th-generation East Hampton local, Hannah Fame Lasurdo is deeply rooted in her community. She studied fine arts, creative writing, and cultural studies at Goddard College in Vermont, Eugene Lang in New York City, and The Evergreen State College in Washington, eventually pursuing a career in publishing in the San Francisco Bay Area, which led to authoring cookbooks and books on travel. But ultimately her nostalgia for shingled Cape Cods, billowing hydrangeas, and quaint villages landed her back in the Hamptons, where she shifted her career path to high-end lighting design. She then travelled nationally and internationally for a decade, designing and installing elaborate outdoor lighting systems for clients. After marrying, having her son, and spending his first years as a stay-at-home mom (all the while cooking, blogging, and painting), she discovered The Scout Guide and saw it as the perfect opportunity to apply all of the connections and skills she’s acquired throughout her life into something that will not only fulfill her own life, but also help bind and support the community she loves so dearly.


HANNAH’S THREE FAVORITE REASONS TO VISIT THE HAMPTONS:

  1. The rich and vibrant arts scene.
  2. The deep and unique histories of each village.
  3. The incredible local produce and seafood.
